Abandoned Mattresses Turned into Appetizing Food Sculptures


Eat me, the new project by artist Lor-K transforms old mattresses and other abandoned rags of the French capital’s streets. Some double-sides Scotch tape, some string, much patience and imagination, and Lor-K gives a second life to the street’s old junk.
